His works represent an artistic intervention that investigates the Mexican urban discourse that took place on the facades of the buildings between the 1950’s and 1990’s.

In the different cities he researches, with the strappo technique he developed, he extracts these vestiges that narrate key moments of the passing of life and eras, leaving a trace for the future.
